Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp Challenge 28

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I am here to share a card for this week's Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp Challenge. The talented and sweet Sparkle invited me to join her wonderful team and I couldn't say no to her. I adore the stamps that Sparkle Creations carries! You will know why in a bit. =) Big thanks to Sparkle for inviting me!! =)


This week's challenge is to make a card with girl images or to make a girly card and here is what I came up with:


See! I told you these stamps are beautiful! This image is Charlotte with a rose. I think Charlotte is such an beauty.


After coloring and cutting her out with a die, I masked Charlotte then inked the paper and stamped Hero Arts' Friend Definition over it. The sentiment piece is made the same way.


The lush patterned paper that I used is from the Restoration collection by Crate Paper. I adore these yummy paper and it's perfect for a girly card! The sentiment is from the Very Vintage Christmas set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

That's all I have for today. Hope you can join us this week! Please go and check out what the other design team members came up with for this challenge and find out all the details here.

Sweet Froggy, Polyanthus Flower & Love Rocket

Hello everyone! Here are a few tags that I made using new digital stamps from Jane's Doodles. Jane is selling those digital stamps on her blog you can find  the link on the side bar of her blog. Or you can click here to see them.


I used the lovely Sweet Froggy for my first tag. Isn't he adorable? Jane wanted these images to have a more natural, hand drawn look and decided not to clean them up and I really like that!


After cutting the frog out using a PTI tag die, I colored him then masked the image before I stamped Hero Arts' Clouds background over it. The cloud die is also from Papertrey Ink and the sentiment is from this set by Hero Arts.


For my second tag, I used the beautiful Polyanthus Flower image. It's also colored,  masked then stamped over with a script background stamp from PTI.


I colored an extra flower, cut parts of it out then pop doted them over the original image for dimension. The sentiment on the tiny tag is from Papertrey Ink.

I used the super cute Love Rocket for my last tag. Don't you love this cute rocket? And it's fueled with love. How sweet!


After coloring and cutting the image out, I applied Glossy Accents to the windows and the hearts. I inked all the paper edges with tumbled glass distress ink. The sky grid background is from the Yum! Yum! kit by Boutique Cute Doll. The sentiment is from the Victorian Fripperie set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.


That's all I have for now. Don't forget to check out Jane's Shop for these new digital stamps!



Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by!

Shall I Play for You

Happy Sunday, my friends! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. =) Here is a card that I made using a beautiful stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil.


Sometimes it makes me happy to see a image being colored. It makes me feel a sense of fulfillment somehow (I know! I am weird!) and this is one of those images.


This image is called Shall I Play for You. Isn't this a magnificent image? It's so detailed and full of life. I just adore it.


I inked around the image while the paper was still in the die. The patterned paper is from the Campfire collection by October Afternoon. I embossed the kraft card base with PTI's Linen & Canvas Impression Plate and the sentiment is from this set by Hero Arts.

Don't forget to check out Mo's Dream Team Blog for more inspirations!

That's all. Hope your day is full of sunshine and laughter! =)

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #32

Happy weekend! =) Thanks for joining me for a card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Here is this week's fun sketch:


Here is my take on it:


I mirrored the sketch to fit my image.


The cute little rocket is from the lovely Half Pint Heroes set. I added Glossy Accents to the window. The sentiment is from the Victorian Fripperie set.


The patterned paper is from the Campfire collection by October Afternoon. I used Tim Holtz's funky scallop die for a little fun border for the universe. =)

You can use any stamps you want for the challenge, but we would love it if you can use Waltzingmouse Stamps! Please go to the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog to see what the other Mischief Makers came up with and check out all the details for the challenge.

Sweet Valentine Ben

Happy Friday, all! Here is a card that I made for Challenge 96 over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog. The challenge is to use chocolate, teal and cream for your card. I added a splash of red and yellow/gold as well. =)


I used the Sweet Valentine Ben for my card. Isn't he cute? I love his big smile. =)


The cardstock that I used to stamp and color the handsome Ben is Copic X-Press It! This is my second image colored using this paper (the first one is this one, but I forgot to mention it...) and I love this paper for coloring. It's thiner than my beloved Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select White Cardstock, but the ink won't bleed or feather. PTI's cardstock is still my favorite though since it's more affordable and they are superb for card bases.


I paired him with the Fine And Dandy True Blue collection by My Mind's Eye. I used the Curly Hearts Border Die and the Heart Banner to add a little interest. The sentiment is from this set by Papertrey Ink.

That's it for now. Have a fabulous day! =)

johnny jumper + peggy polka dot & catie cupcake

Hello. Hope your are having a wonderful week so far. Here are a couple of cards that I made for the poppystamps blog.


I used the adorable johnny jumper and peggy polka dot for my first card. I thought that they would make a cute couple. =)


I colored and cut out the daisy from patricia petal and made it look like johnny jumper is giving it to peggy. The patterned paper is from the Sprout collection by Memory Box. The sentiment is from the Strawberries set by Flourishes.


For my second card, I chose the sweet catie cupcake. Instead of using her cupcake, I punched out some butterflies and gave her hold a little one. The scrip stamp Faded Words (B860) is from Memory Box. I stamped it using dusty concord, bundled sage and wild honey distress inks with a spritz of water.


The sentiment is Missing You (A852) also from Memory Box. This card is also posted here at the poppystamps blog.

That's all for today. Have a fabulous day, my friends! =)

Here is my card for Claire:


I pressed wild honey, barn door and tea dye distress inks on my craft sheet, spritzed water over the inks then dragged the piece of watercolor paper through the pool of ink to create the background.


I then built the tree scene using the beautiful and versatile Teeny Trees set. The sentiment is also included in the stamp set. A piece of seam binding dyed with milled lavender distress ink and some pearls finish the card

Happy Birthday, Claire! Hope you have the most wonderful day and hope you get spoiled by your loved ones! =)

Wool Ewe?

Hello all! Hope your week is off to a great start! Here is a card that I made for Recipe Tuesday over at the PWCO blog. Here is this week's recipe:

  • blue & green
  • 1 image
  • a charm
Here is my card:


Mmmm.... So I didn't really stick to just blue and green, but I used them for the focal image. =)


The adorable image that I used is from RAM's Valentine release called Wool Ewe? That little sheep is too cute! The patterned paper is from the Fine And Dandy True Blue collection by My Mind's Eye except for the green polka dot one.


I made a little crochet winged heart keychain as the charm. I thought that it would be perfect for a Valentine's Day card.


A closer look of the winged heart charm/keychain. Also, please check this post for the PWCO Release Blog Hop winners!

That's all I have for today. Have a lovely day! =)

3 Silhouettes & Large Fabric Design

Hello~~ How was your weekend? We had really nice weather, but since Sundays are my "coloring days" we stayed in and got some laundry and coloirng done. =)


I made this card for Hero Arts' monthly challenge and Moxie Fab World's The Grey is the New Black challenge.


Hero Arts' January challenge is Inspired by the 2011 Catalog & Card Insides. The design of the card is inspired by the page where the 3 Silhouettes stamp set is shown in Hero Arts' new catalog. I used an oval die to emboss the white cardstock first then masked the embossed area before I stamped the beautiful Large Fabric Design with pumice stone distress ink. The silhouette is stamped on a piece of white cardstock with victorian velvet then cut using the same size oval die. I then matted the oval cut out with a piece of smoky shadow cardstock. The background is also smoky shadow. The larger pearls are colored grey with a Copic marker. The sentiment is from this set also by Hero Arts.

That's all I have for today. Have a lovely day! =)

Superduper Girl

Happy Sunday! Hope you are having a lovely weekend. =) Here is a card made using another lovely image from Mo's Digital Pencil.


I used the cute, cute Superduper Girl for this card.


Isn't she the sweetest? For some reason I just adore this image. Maybe it's the confidence we all have at that age? That paper crown is such a cute detail!


I paired her with BasicGrey's Sugar Rush collection. The heart border is cut using Whiff of Joy Stamps' Lovely Hearts border die. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

That's all from me, don't forget to check out Mo's Dream Team Blog for more inspirations!

Willow with hot chocolate

This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down or click here to see my card for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Thanks!

Here is a project that I made for the Whiff of Joy Inspirations & Tutorial blog.


I made a box that uses the largest die in Spellbinders' Labels 17 set as the covers. Please click here to find out how it's made.


The image I used is Willow with hot chocolate and I stamped Hero Arts' gorgeous Large Fabric background on the box covers with VersaMark. The patterned paper that I used to mat the image is from the victoria collection by 7gypsies. The sentiment is from the Very Vintage Chrismas set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

Special thanks to the uber talented Beate Johns for her video here. I modified the box from that video to make mine. Thanks for all the inspirations, Beate! =)

Here is my card:


I once again used the lush paper from the Mariposa collection by DCWV. Those pretty patterns are irresistible!
